I have known Doug Fraggi for over 15 years working in the hospitality industry. He has been a loyal and trusted friend, but also someone I admire and respect for his work abilities and attention to his clientele. Since I have known him he has always brought a high level of hospitality and attention to detail to his events and concierge services. Doug has amazing knowledge and access to all of the unique spots and the history of the Valley. On a personal level, I have hired him and referred him to all of my friends and family. He brings with him a personal touch for small groups who do not want to be loaded onto a bus and shuttled around like cattle. His attention to detail and his recommendations for restaurants and the secret hot-spots is unparalleled. You won’t be disappointed! Happy Tasting :)

As someone who has been a part of the valley and industry for over a decade, Doug knows the ins and outs of Napa and Sonoma. This was evident on my tour. He’s incredibly professional, unflappable, and friends with everyone! Tasting with him is like hanging with your best friend. Cannot wait for my next trip with Beyond the Bay Tours!
